Illustrated, 8vo, pp (xii) 290, a very good copy in dustwrapper. [The author's quest in search of Admiral Francis Beaufort, hydrographer to the British Admiralty, man of science, and author - Scott Huler assumed - of the Beaufort Wind Scale. But what Huler discovered was that the scale that carried Beaufort's name had a long and complex evolution and his research takes him to the lives and works of figures from Daniel Defoe and Charles Darwin to Captain Bligh, of the Bounty, and Cook, of the Endeavour. This readable book is often humorous and always rich story that is ultimately about how we observe the forces of nature and the worlds around us.]
